"We are very pleased to be working with Scott Metcalf, Neil MacPherson, and the rest of Cede," said Michael Stover of MTS Management Group. "This act is extremely talented, with a sound that is all its own, while managing to fit with exactly what is needed at CCM radio today. I'm looking forward to a very successful campaign."
Cede was founded in 2010 by San Francisco Bay Area songwriter and worship music leader, Scott Metcalf, along with Neil MacPherson, Aaron Nuss, Alex Cordrey, and Stewart Burr. Scott has previously worked with many well-known artists in the CCM industry: Donnie Boutwell (Chris Tomlin), Trey Hill (Sonicflood)
Cede's last two singles, "Not My Own" and "The Great Reunion," were both
honored with Top 10 spots by CCM Network International. They will be releasing their album, "New Beginnings" soon, with an accompanying tour to follow. Cede is also donating 50% of their sales from their Reverbnation page to World Vision, through the Music For Good program.
The band includes music director and keyboardist Neil MacPherson (Bobby McFerrin, John Popper, Marc Ford); vocalist Tammi Brown (Coldplay and Stanley Jordan); vocalist Will Russ (Bill Hopkins Orchestra); drummer Stuart Burr (Chubby Checker, John Lucas); vocalist Aaron Nuss; acoustic guitarist Reggie Coates; and Nashville session bassist, Alex Cordrey (Luce).
